Terminate Workspaces Inactive for More Than 30 Days

Updated 2 weeks ago by Totalcloud

There's a template already available in the web app for this use case. This workflow template helps you automate terminating all the Amazon Workspaces that are inactive for more than 30 days.

Please find below the information on how this template works and how you can customize it according to your needs.

How Does This Template Work?

  1. Trigger node initiates the workflow every Monday at 12 am.
  2. Resource node fetches all Workspaces belonging to an AWS account and AWS region.
  3. Resource node's Add-ons feature picks up 'Workspaces Connection Status' of all the fetched Workspaces.
  4. Filter node filters out all the Workspaces inactive for more than 30 days.
  5. Action node terminates all the filtered out Workspaces from previous node.
